The dinner today was disappointing. The fish soup was tastless and was more a noodle soup than a fish soup. The fish (dourade) had lost most of it's taste on the BBQ and was dry. All was served on a plate with tastless, vegetables, which were even not propper warmed up. The salade, served on the same plate was not... More

The service at this little local restaurant is very friendly, and the seafood is absolutely delicious. I tried the piri piri prawns and monkfish in rice - both were cooked to perfection and very tasty. My partner raved about the fresh grilled sardines too. Don't be put off by the dated decor and noise from the crab tank - it's... More

Went for lunch in January when many restaurants are closed, and possibly the regular chef was on holiday. There was an elderly couple; the man serving and the woman cooking. Service was pleasant. The food was memorably bad. Had to go for a coffee to take the taste away. The restaurant has been there for generations, so presumably must be... More

We were walking around Lagos, looking for somewhere to eat and I am so glad we found this restaurant. We had such an enjoyable evening and dinner felt like an event. The premises may look drab and rather tired, but it really felt like a traditional Portuguese restaurant. The service was welcoming, efficient and unrushed. The food was tasty, fresh... More

We ordered the special lunch menu which consisted of bread & butter, vegetable soup, a choice of Piri Piri chicken, sardines, or pork, and a sweet, plus your choice of red wine, white wine or beer. All this for the paltry sum of €9.90 each. The staff were pleasant and the atmosphere casual.

It was the first time in Portugal, finding fresh swimming crabs in the tank, at this restaurant. We ordered a full size 800 gram crab, cooked it by steaming but purposely chilled when serving at the table, with crab shell containing crab meat and eggs, mixing with thousand island dressing, serving with melba toast, making the taste so unbelievable. The... More

Very friendly and lovely service. Food is good difficult to say if it is more than average, but if we would visit Lagos again we would probably go there again.
